[laughter] and then he said are you still the director of hushovd rahm? i was the secretary of state, but in russia dmitry medvedev who was the deputy prime minister was also the chairman, so the state economy and portions lead up with fair amount of violence, too. now that he has decided that he is the once and future president of russia i think the chance that russia is going to break out of that and build on the other strengths it might have including a very smart population those have receded and i think unfortunately russia will not find a greater strength in the international economy it's pretty much dependent on
are still without a plan that was originally envisioned. arizona border's technology development remains in question. according to the jo, the department does not have the information necessary to support the estimated $1.5 billion plan, which is the successor to the council's multibillion-dollar fbi net. the department has not demonstrated the effectiveness in deploying surveillance technology. the jo also found that $1.5 billion cost estimate may not be reliable. if this new plan goes awry, the department will have spent over two billion dollars in an attempt to develop technology with little more to show them cancel programs and canceled checks the contractors. this is but one example why the department must go through this acquisition system, to improve how it does its job analysis and make sure we have a better way of purchasing technology. the new administration has made some improvement, the newly created accountability and risk- management designed to manage the oversight acquisition program appears to be a step in the right direction. i am concerned only 45 staff in this office

[applause] >> thank you very much, steve, for that warm and generous introduction, and thank you also for your many decades of service and, indeed, i see a lot of folks here who are either current active duty or retired military, and i thank all of you for your years of service to the nation. what i'm here to talk about today is the contents of my new book which, as steve mentioned, is a history of ger or ril la warfare. and although it may seem thick and daunting at first glance, i did try to tell a good story. it's sort of encapsulated, 5,000 years of guerrilla warfare history into one book. now, that may seem like a formidable upside taking, but here today in front of your very eyes, i'm going to try to encapsulate the entire book into about a 2546 minute talk -- 25-minute talk.
